The Rural Services Partnership has published an article by the DDA on rising use of digital NHS services during COVID-19, including use of online pharmacies.

The article quotes NHS Digital EPS nomination for the period Jan 3, 2020 – April 2, 2021, which shows that the top 10 EPS nomination sites almost doubled their share of EPS nominations over this period, to 1.56m nominations.

In one week, the figures show that two online only operators alone accounted for just over one million EPS nominations, and collectively grew their business by over 3,800 nominations.
